IM Reference. You are, too.

The Terrebonne Parish Library System now has a nifty new gadget...Instant Message reference. We've installed Meebome! on our library homepage and so now patrons will be able to instantly communicate with reference staff online. For now, we've tentatively set the schedule for librarians waiting for messages at 10-11 am, 2-3 pm and 6:30-8 pm.

We'll be able to answer questions, suggest websites and even quote relevant text for information seekers. Best of all, patrons won't have to install anything. They just have to go to our library homepage and there, to the left, will be the chat box.

Of course our homepage can't be seen by the outside world right now because Gustave rearranged our E-face, but you can chat with us to the right of this very blog entry. See? ==>
Right there.

So if you want instant service and don't want to use your cell minutes, try our INSTANT LIBRARIAN IM Reference service. Keep us busy!
